    Hello guys. I am working on a 4L case design.

    Specs:
    ITX + LP Dual Slot
    CPU Cooler: Max cooler height 80mm
    GPU: Full Length, Dual Slot, LP (1050 ti)
    PSU: Meanwell 2x4 12V/24V; External Brick
    SSD: 2x 2.5 with bracket, and single 2.5 in front
    Case Fans: single slim 92mm or dual slim 80mm on top (bottom can fit 92/80mm, depends on GPU)
    Expected release: Summer 2019

    It does take influence from Lone Industries L4. It is a bit taller and can comfortably fit a NH-L12S with room for breathing. You can also use a NH-L9x65 + Meanwell 2x4 (depends on board layout)

    If this is successful, I will also make a sandwich layout variant.

    Looks great! Why the choice to do an external 12v instead of internal?

    It will support an internal RPS-200-12-C natively, with wiring kits available at the time of release.

    If all goes well, it'll launch along side my 200W PicoPSU.

    I am working on the side bracket right now.

    This is the main side bracket and here's what I'm looking to support:
    • 2x 2.5SSD on bracket Or Meanwell 200W
    • 140mm, or 120mm + meanwell/2.5SSD
    • 3.5 HDD
    There will also be an additional top bracket to support SSDs, but it will block the use of a top fan. The top bracket will likely be 3D printed to save cost.

    Also, the chassis width will be increased to 100mm. This will give you 85mm of cooler clearance, allow you to fit a NH-L12S with top fan (hopefully, production is sometimes different than 3D). I still recommend the NH-L12 regular edition since you don't want the fan next to the side panel.

    If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment. I'd like to provide as much support through the side bracket as possible.

    What're you thinking for I/O? Something on the opposite side?

    It'll leaning towards no IO. Possibly IO in front panel if it is often requested.

    Loving the idea so far. Can't wait to see how it goes for you.

    I don't mind no front I/O if it means simpler production and less cost.

    Will it support HDPlex 400W?
